BarBar Hair Tools Review & Discount Code

Lately I have been trying to find new ways to do my Hair for work,Since I have to wear the same shirt/pants to work everyday I want to find other ways to still express myself & look different each day instead of looking exactly the same every time I go to work because well that gets boring after a while,I have naturally wavy hair but I hate the way it looks so I always straighten my hair I rarely go out with wavy/poofy hair, One of the things I have never really tried is curling my hair but I usually like the way 'Prom' curls look.



I had an amazing opportunity to work with a company called BarBar Hair Tools I had my chance to pick any One item I wanted from their site since I already own a Blow dryer & two hair straighteners I automatically went to the Curling iron section I ended up picking out the BARBAR 2005 Spring 3 in 1 Tourmaline Curling Iron.I was amazed by the quality of this Hair curler I have never personally seen a Hair curler which had multiple sized curlers which could be switched out.So far I have only used the smallest sized Curler because to be truthfully honest I suck at curling hair,All the curls came out Uneven or didn't say as well as the other side of my head so I need more practice but I like how easy the curler is to use & how easy the front is to read to tell how hot your curler is & if it is ready to use.Everything came in a great little carrying case.The shipping speed of the company was excellent I think this curler is great to use for special occasions & for your everyday needs.****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used. The opinions are solely my own and may vary from others.Products were Provided by BarBar Hair Tools for the Review.****

This is how my hair turned out:



Yes I know not the best photo but I Always hate the way I look in photos,I will be doing a review & giveaway for the Slouch Hat seen in the photo as well keep an eye out for it.

BONUS: Want to purchase the same curler or another item from the BarBar website? Use the discount code Blog4Fun for 50% OFF any purchase made.valid until the end of March

Roundabouts GIVEAWAY & Review

What is better than having cupcakes that match your Party theme? I love the idea of being able to make my cupcakes look like fancy little cakes,or other odd objects like a treasure chest. I recently worked with a company called Roundabouts 'The fun & Easy way to decorate cupcakes!"



I was sent a 1 Dozen decorative sleeve kit which will make my cupcakes look like little hamburgers.Inside of the package are easy directions for how to use your cupcake sleeves,they even give you an easy tip for making your frosting the perfect color.I know the tops says to top off your 'Hamburger' with a small sprinkle of sesame seeds,though sesame seeds don't really have a taste I found it kind of odd to use them on a cupcake so I decided to use small white sprinkles which looked great.The Roundabouts are simple & easy to use,It is a fast way to brighten any party & make your guests really have the 'WOW' experience you are hoping for,I didn't have a party that I used these at just a Home experience but the visitors I did have over through out the day thought they were adorable.I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commissions 16 CFR, Part 255 Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.

Beecology Review

I must Admit that I have an Addiction,What is that Addiction too? Bath Items & Makeup,When I was young I could care less about what type of bath products I used a bar of soap,Conditioner & shampoo were enough for me but now I loved Body creams,Bath salts,Bath bombs,Facial scrubs,ect I always love trying out new bath items to look for more of my 'Must Have' favorites to add to my wish lists every year.



I recently worked with a Company called Beecology, I was sent the following: Original Honey Hand & Body Cream,Buzz Balm Soothing & Healing Lip Balm x2,Honey & Oat Morning Soap,Totally Hip Hemp Soap with Lemongrass. . .Dude, & Relaxing Lavender with Honey Soap.My favorite soap that they sent is the Hemp Soap it smells fantastic I also really like the Honey & Oat soap,The soaps they offer smell great & leave your skin feeling soft,clean,& moisturized I really enjoy the lather they give you.The Buzz Balm Soothing & Healing Lip Balm is smooth & glides on perfectly it leaves your lips with a slight peppermint tingle & a small peppermint smell,The Original Honey Hand & Body doesn't really have a scent that I can smell which is nice because sometimes I want a lotion that doesn't make me smell like the scent for an hour or more,the Lotion went on smooth & left my skin feeling soft.One of my favorite things about this company that I noticed right away is that they donate 10% of their profits from each product to Charity,Thats right Not 10% of their yearly product but 10% from each single item,Where do they donate it to? YOU decide each product you buy comes with its own charity code you head to their charity website,Type in the charity code & choose which charity you would like to donate the 10% to from the list they provide & then they will donate that 10% from the product you purchased,Each item they sell has the charity code even the Lip Balms.I love the products that Beecology has sent me for review I have enjoyed using their products.I am saving One Buzz Balm Soothing & Healing Lip Balm & The Relaxing Lavender with Honey Soap for my up coming Celebration giveaway keep your eyes open! ****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used. The opinions are solely my own and may vary from others.Products were Provided by Beecology for the Review****

Lumiere Cosmetics Review

As you know we are moving on Tuesday so there may be a day or two where there are no posts,Thinking about moving I wanted to check out Delsey luggage because once we move we will be ready for a vacation lol & I do not have proper luggage to carry everything in.




Everyday at work I am stuck in the same colored shirt & pants as part of company policy so how do you still show self expression without getting in trouble with dress code? Jewelry & Makeup I try to wear a Different color eye shadow & a different assortment of Jewelry everyday to still add something to my wardrobe so its not the same exact outfit every single day.



I recently had a wonderful chance to work with a company called Lumiere Cosmetics,For my review I was sent a eyeshadow in the colors: Prismatic Blue[Blue opal like sheen],Ivory,Helitrope[Muted heather purple with violet sheen] A blush called Ditto 'O' & A small lip gloss called Tahitian Coral.I can tell you know that Right away I new I would love the Tahitian Coral Lip balm it is a fabulous colors & looks great with everyday makeup,I also really like the Blush it is light yet can still be seen without making your makeup look over done.Out of the Eyeshadow sent I tried out the Helitrope I am saving Prismatic Blue & Ivory for an upcoming giveaway so keep your eyes open.I thought that Helitrope was a little light for my taste but it is great for the work atmosphere & to use if you are trying for a smokey eye look,The eyeshadow applied easily & removed easy as well I enjoyed using it & Love some of the colors shown on the Lumiere Cosmetics website,They are worth checking out they also sell bath & body items.****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used. The opinions are solely my own and may vary from others.Products were Provided by Lumiere Cosmetics for the Review****

Big Berkey Water Filters GIVEAWAY & Review

I have had a fantastic week I hope all of you are doing just as great,It is still a little chilly here on days but it is starting to warm up again.One of the things I look forward to doing before it gets too hot here is Hiking.



I Recently had a wonderful chance to work with a company called Big Berkey Water Filters.For my review I was sent Two "Sport Berkey" which are water bottles with a water Filter in it.Here is a little information from their Website "This advanced technology was developed, refined, and proven through diligent, investigative research and testing performed by water purification specialists, researchers and engineers. The media within the filter element removes contaminants by a surface phenomenon known as "adsorption" which results from the molecular attraction of substances to the surface of the media. As the sport berkey bottle is pressed, the source water is forced through the filter. The quality and volume of media used, determine the rate of adsorption. The flow rate or time of exposure through the filter has been calculated to yield the greatest volume removal of toxic chemicals caused by pollution from industry and agriculture. This exclusive filter element is impregnated with proprietary "absorbing" media that promotes IONIC "absorption" of pollutants within the micro-porous element, such as aluminum, cadmium, chromium, copper, lead, mercury, and other dangerous heavy metals". I love how you can actually see the filter so you know its there,A lot of the times we are in a Hurry & can't go down to fill up our water jugs so we have to use tap water which almost everyone knows is full of a lot of Lead & Metals not the best water to drink but 80% of people drink it daily so it is nice to know that this bottle filters out all of the Hurtful materials.I found it slightly hard to drink from the straw provided with the bottle but I think that may be due to the bottle still being new.The bottles are a great size & fit right into my backpack/purse without a problem the only problem is not forgetting it at home in the fridge hahaha.****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used. The opinions are solely my own and may vary from others.Products were Provided by Big Berkey Water Filters for the Review & Giveaway****



PRIZE ALERT:
One Lucky Winner will win their Own Sport Berkey water bottle.

Sweet Sallys Review

Who doesn't love sweets? I know I do though I should really be staying away from them but one here & there can't hurt if you keep an eye on how much of it you eat. I recently worked with a company called Sweet Sallys who makes a wonderful assortment of delicious & mouth watering looking goodies.



I was sent Rainy Day Fudge Brownies[Heart Shaped],Romantic Raspberry Squares,Carrie's Classic Spritz Hearts & Big Apple Heart Crackle.First I tried the Big Apple Heart Crackle which is "A decadent, crunchy combination of bittersweet chocolate, buttery caramel and adorable mini hearts" I am not sure why but my DH & Myself didn't really like the Crackle though we did give it to a friend who was over & he ate the entire container before he left he loved it. Next we tried the Rainy Day Fudge Brownies "A dense and fudgy brownie loaded with chocolate" They were Amazing! the texture was perfect the outside was crunchy/hard but not burnt & the inside was soft,chewy & moist a perfect combination for brownies.Next were the Romantic Raspberry Squares "These decadent squares will melt in your mouth. A dense buttery crust is topped with European raspberry preserves and a delicious streusel containing coconut and walnuts" Normally I hate coconut but these tasted great they only had the tiniest bit of coconut in them to give them an extra 'Kick' my DH isn't as big of a fan of them but I really enjoyed them it was a nice change from all the chocolate treats everyone sells.The Carrie's Classic Spritz Hearts "Delicate heart shaped butter cookie sprinkled with sugar for extra sweetness." were very moist they practically fell apart in your mouth,I like them but the Brownies & Raspberry squares out weight how much I like these but they are still moist have a great taste & aren't chalked full of chocolate.Everything came in adorable little white boxes & small plastic containers with ribbons perfect for presenting as a gift to a loved one.****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used.

For my review I was sent a 20 Piece flat ware set,"Knork Flatware was formed with hope and vision of creating and producing products to aid in the chaos of today's on-the-go society.

Miller, the company is aggressive in its strategy and innovative in its approach-creating solutions for use in an unlimited number of markets.Knork Flatware, a division of Phantom Enterprises, seeks to enhance the dining experience by integrating a fork with the functionality of a knife built in. The Knork concept modernizes flatware and has produced the flatware of today... and tomorrow." (Info used from their site) I love this silver ware set they are shaped much differently from normal forks & spoons to help make cutting your food easier. Ever try cutting a baked potato with your fork only to get stopped by the potato skin? With the Knork Flatware you won't have that problem We have been using this silver ware set for pretty much everything they have now replaced our old silver ware.I know that they will last for years to come so I am very happy with the fantastic quality of Knork.****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used.

My Embroidered Gifts GIVEAWAY & Review

Yesterday I shared a company with you called Votre Vu which offers heavenly products that make you feel like your in a spa,Today I wanted to share another review with you that offers the perfect item to go along with your 'Spa' Experience I had the wonderful opportunity to work with a company called My Embroidered Gifts who offers a Number of products which can be personalized.



For my review I received a Black and Pink Towel Wrap From Mint - Large W/ Single Name I had them put the name 'Luna' on my Towel Wrap,I was amazed at how fast my package arrived it was sent Priority mail which always gets here in a fast amount of time but that isn't what surprised me Normally when I order personalized items they are always slow to arrive so I was stunned at the speed My Embroidered Gifts fulfills their orders.The quality is amazing my Towel Wrap says 'Luna' in blue lettering written in Script.It is so amazingly soft I am afraid to use it as a Towel Wrap I don't want to ruin the way the material feels which sounds silly but if you could feel how soft the Towel Wrap is you might feel the same way.This is perfect for when I forgot to grab a shirt before I got in the shower & people are over or if I am out swimming this securely stays around your waist or chest,Since I have a large chest I was worried it would make it to where the Towel Wrap was too short to wear but I was wrong it works perfect.I recently got a new tattoo on my back so most my shirts hurt to wear the day of so I wore this around the house with a pair of my black Yoga pants,Yes I looked a little goofy but I was comfortable as can be.My Embroidered Gifts also offers Bears,Bags,Mens items,Childrens items & More they are definitely worth checking out,When I am in need of a great gift for any occasion I know where to look.****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used.

Votre Vu Review

I have always adorable Pairs,I love the Eiffel tower I have many photos of it in my home so when I was asked to do a Review for a company called Votre Vu. Paris ~ France I was very happy to accept.For my review I was sent the following: A Votre Sante - Elixir Essentiel,Portrait Collar - Restorative neck creme, & Attentive - Creme De Jour Sensitive Skin.



Wow where to begin? Since it is the first thing you see let's talk about the packaging there isn't much more that I can say besides it is very attractive If i was merely shopping in a store & seen these packages on the shelf I would stop to look at them.They have a Gold/White floral pattern box with their Logo,& on the top of their box is their 'V' logo which looks like a Wax seal though its really part of the packaging,Inside the box is the same pattern but its red.When I opened the A Votre Sante - Elixir Essentiel It smelled great I was immediately interested in the product though I wasn't sure what it did,The directions on the package says "Shake Well,Close your eyes & Spray Liberally all over face,Anywhere,Anytime.Mist Lightly to set Make-up.Enjoy Immediate hydration & sudden relief.Some call it an instant personality boost." I didn't want to spray it on my face at first because I didn't know if it would smell like the box when I opened it after it was sprayed so I sprayed it on my chest.One spray goes a long ways & smells great you get a nose full of a Floral Citrus scent I really enjoy how it smells because it is not over whelming I plan on keeping this in my purse for those days when I need an extra boost at work.The bottle is the perfect size I do have an over sized fabric bag I tote around so I have plenty of room but I keep a lot of stuff in it so I need small/medium items for it & the A Votre Sante - Elixir Essentiel is perfect.



Next I tried the Attentive - Creme De Jour Sensitive Skin again this smells amazing! This product is light & does not leave my face feeling greasy,Shiny or Tight/Dry like some skin treatments do I love testing out new skin care products to find which suits me best I often have problems with my nose/cheeks becoming very dry & regular lotion doesn't work but the Attentive - Creme De Jour Sensitive Skin feels great & makes my skin look fantastic,I think I have found my new favorite daily skin care cream though I feel bad for pushing my old one aside but The Attentive - Creme De Jour Sensitive Skin is very much worth it.The Portrait Collar - Restorative neck creme is supposed to help combat sagging tissues,diminish dreadful lines & promote youthful looking skin I haven't used it on my neck yet but I did rub a little bit info my hand,it is another of Votre Vu's fabulous smelling products & doesn't leave the skin feeling greasy or oily it is the perfect smooth texture.I loved the chance to work with Votre Vu & Hope to do so again in the future their products are magical & makes you feel like your in an at home spa getting all of the personal attention you need,They also offer a Mens Line.****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used.

AXE GIVEAWAY & Review

Ready for another giveaway? This post is a little bit late but things were pretty busy during the last two weeks of December.I know that almost everyone on the planet [I know this isn't true] has heard of the company AXE who sells Mens/Boys Soaps,Shampoos,Body Sprays,Deodorant & More.



I was asked to host a Review & Giveaway for AXE,for one of their Limited Edition scents.I was sent a Box set which contained a Body Spray,A Body wash & A shampoo in the scent 'Music' I know that seems like a weird name for a smell & doesn't describe how it smells at all but the scent smells wonderful,It isn't over powering or 'Old' man scented,but perfect for a guy in their teens-30's even older,My DH loves the smell of it & I love the way it smells on him.My DH has never been a fan of the AXE body sprays because they are a little over powering since it is air compressed in a can so we gave it to my brother who is now using it daily because of how much he likes it.The item that came in this gift set that my DH likes the most is the Daily Clean Shampoo when it comes out of the bottle is is a Rich Red color, When you have a decent sized amount in your hand it almost appears to look red/black to me it looks like shiny blood,After my DH uses the Daily Clean shampoo his hair smells great,looks amazing & feels very soft I love playing with his hair after he gets out of the shower.I love this set & I am very happy my DH was able to test a set out,I am also excited that I get to offer one of you your very own set,You can use it as a Surprise for your man this Valentines day.****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used. The opinions are solely my own and may vary from others.Products were Provided by AXE for the Review & Giveaway****

One Lucky Winner will win a AXE music gift set which includes: A Shampoo,A Body wash & A Body Spray.

Strawesome GIVEAWAY & Review

Is it Sunday already? Time really does fly.Tomorrow morning I have a job interview which I am excited about Please wish me luck! Today I will be jumping right to todays giveaway,from one of my most recent sponsors which is a company called Strawesome who makes Glass Straws.



For my review I was sent one large Glass Straw & a Straw cleaner.I personally love Glass straws there are many positive things about using glass straws,They are strong,Eco friendly since they can be washed & reused,Since they are not plastic they won't leach chemicals into your drink & they are clear so you can tell if they really are clean or not.The straw I received has an interesting design it is decorated with a cluster of small glass 'bumps' around the top of the straw which are Peach,Yellow & Purple the straw itself has a purplish tint to it.It sounds like the bumps would make it feel weird to drink out of the straw but they are down low enough you are still able to drink comfortably,The bumps are there for decoration.Strawesome offers straws with an assortment of decorations,colors & sizes for all occasions they would make a great way for everyone to remember which drink was theirs at a party.I also thoroughly enjoy the Straw pipe cleaner which was sent with my review straw,It fits perfectly into the straw & since it is long reaches all the way through the straw making sure every inch of my straw is clean,I also use this straw cleaner to clean the other glass & metal straws I own,it is very helpful & handy to have around.I used to use plastic straws but always hated throwing them away now I am happy to say I am a Glass Straw user & would be more than happy to buy more of them,my whole family enjoys them.****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used. The opinions are solely my own and may vary from others.Products were Provided by Strawesome for the Review & Giveaway****



PRIZE ALERT:

One lucky winner will win their own Glass Straw & straw cleaner [Strawesome will pick the straw for you]

Paintfx Cosmetics GIVEAWAY & Review

It has been a while since I was last able to bring you a fun makeup review & giveaway but I have a new one for you today that I hope you will all enjoy.Over winter break I had the chance to work with a company called Paintfx Cosmetics.


[Fantasy,Brownie]

I was sent eye shadows in the following colors: Brownie,Intertia [Redish Pink],Exaffair [Pink],Euro [Teal],Fantasy [Pink/Raspberry],& Transpose[Purple]. Everything came wrapped perfectly I was excited to see all of the bright colors inside of each small makeup jar.Each color is Bold,Long lasting & applies on smoothly.Each color has a small amount of sparkles to it so that it isn't just a flat color,Colors can be combined & slightly mixed together to create fun & unique looks.I love the fact that each eye shadow jar is marked with the Ingredients on the back so you know exactly what is in your makeup,It also has the companies name & location.Each jar has enough eyeshadow to last for a month- four months depending on how much you use your eyeshadow everyone uses different amounts to reach their desired look with their eyeshadow but based off of the amount I use I would say there is enough in each jar to last for up to a hundred eye shadow applications & keep in mind I only received sample jars not the regular sized jar they sell on their website.I have enjoyed working with Paintfx Cosmetics & would buy from them again they also sell glitter,eye shadow pallets,& more for eyes,lips,face & more.Shipping was decent & customer service is friendly & easy to work with.****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used.

Educational Toy Planet Review

I finally have everything caught up email & blog wise when it comes to sending out notifications & sponsor emails now I can get back to my normal blog schedule,I also have a good percent of my packing for the move already done things are looking good.



I have a review to share with you today before todays review/giveaway.I am part of the Educational Toy Planet mommy blogger's team,I was recently sent my first toy to review with my two year old daughter.I was sent a Linking Loops Classic Bead & Wire Maze I was excited for my daughter to play with this toy,Why? I remember when I used to go to doctors offices,the dentist ect with my parents when I was a kid the waiting rooms were always boring but I looked forward to playing with the wire mazes they had,It is a very simple toy but it is a ton of fun.The Linking Lopps Classic Bead & Wire Maze can be found in the Motor Skills section of Educational Toy Planet.The Linking Loops helps children with expand the following Skills: Manipulative Skills, Counting, Colors Recognition, Hand/Eye Coordination.My daughter is at the stage where she is everywhere playing with everything so she hardly ever sits down to play with one specific toy for a set amount of time,but she does enjoy sitting down moving the beads across the wire to get them to the other side,I like the fact that both wires are extremely different from the other one is short,& sweet with a little bit of a wave & the other is long,twisty & intertwined with the other.The Linking Loops Classic Bead & Wire Maze is light weight so it is easy for my daughter to carry around with her,since it is small it is easy to take along on car rides to keep my daughter happy when we are running errands or going on a long trip.This really is a classic toy I look forward to keeping this toy for years to come & hope that when our son comes into this world he will enjoy it as well.




Educational Toy Planet offers toys for all Age ranges,the site is easy to navigate with everything put into age groups & categories such as Motor Skills,Math toys,Arts & Crafts plus many more but best of all everything is at affordable prices.****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used.

Serif Review

I am going through my emails today sorting everything into their folders,Messing giveaway winners,Sponsors ect. I am also starting to pack up my house & clean,it is going to be a busy day today.



One of my favorite things to do in my Free time is put together scrapbooks with memories of my Daughters life so far,Weddings,Holidays,ect anything & everything I think is important in life My DH & I collect concert tickets from shows we go to together & small things such as our wrist bands to Castles N Coasters on our dates things that remind us of the good times.



I recently had a chance to work with a company called Serif who creates an assortment of programs to use on your Home Computer or Laptop,For my review I was sent a Digital Scrapbook Arist 2.I was excited to test it out because you can create full scrapbook pages right on your computer which saves glue,Paper scraps & More.The program was easy to install with simple instructions,It helps walk you through the set up process which takes less than 10 minutes for the whole program to upload & install onto your computer.The program has full page layouts you can use or you can create your own piece by piece,One of my favorite things about this program is that you get your own special Owners code & profile set up along with your program you also have a Free account to a sister site called Daisy Trail which is a website that you can purchase page layouts,Kits that have frames,Stamps,Fonts & More They are also owned by Serif.There are many free kits to pick from & they only take a short amount of time to up load,Some may take a little longer than others depending on how many items are in the kit.They have kits & layouts for all occasions summer,Valentines,Weddings & Much more.I had a fun time messing around experimenting with this kit,It has an option so that you can go through all your kits when creating a scrapping page where you can pick your favorites from each kit to place into your own personal kit which makes finding everything so much easier.Digital Scrapbook Arist 2 is easy to use,I have found it is a lot easier to use & has a simple set up compared to other programs such as Photoshop.I have enjoyed using this program & look forward to using it more often for my Scrapbooking & Invite making needs.****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used.

Pick & Draw GIVEAWAY & Review

I know that you are ready for Today's giveaway now! I have a special giveaway that is fun for the whole family,It is always important to spend as much time with your family as you can No matter how many friends you have that come & go your family will always be there for you through thick & thin.What is a better way of spending time together then Game Nights?



I recently had an opportunity to work with a company call Pick & Draw,I was recently sent a series one Pick & Draw.Pick & Draw is a fun, one-of-a-kind drawing game that teaches you how to make very creative cartoon faces,There are 60,000 different possibilities in the game (a deck of cards).The game uses mainly simple shapes everyone already knows how to do thereby giving confidence to those who try It is simple and easy to use providing endless hours of fun and learning. In five minutes or less you will know how to play.The game suggest that you should use a Piece of paper & a Pencil with an eraser but I think that is a Waste of paper & bad for the environment so we use Medium sized White boards I found at the dollar store.The game has separate piles of cards that you choose from for your character you pick one card from each stack which will create your face,The game comes with easy instructions that are simple to follow.The game also comes with a sheet that gives you small tips for how to make your pick & draw experience more fun including Three small questions to answer for each of the characters you draw including 'What is His/Her Name?" that way not only are you drawing a character but your making their personality & story as well.I think this game is the perfect way to inspire young kids to use their Imagination.



PRIZE ALERT:

One lucky winner will Win their own Pick & Draw game [Series One]

Cowgirl Chocolates Review

Today has been another busy day but I didn't want to leave you without any new posts so I am here to share some Reviews & a Fun giveaway with you,I am still catching up on Blog Winner updates I have lots of emails to go through & send out before I can post a new list but hopefully it will be up soon.



I love working with companies that offer Unique products,It could be anything Clothing,Jewelry,Food items if it is Unique & Hard to find in a normal store such as Walmart then it is on the top of my Want to try list.One of the companies I had a fun chance to work with is called Cowgirl Chocolates,Recently for a review I was sent a small box of Chocolates.Inside of the box were the following flavors: MILD TRUFFLE FLAVORS: Pure Milk Chocolate,Double Dark Chocolate,Ivory Orange,Raspberry lemonade dark chocolate SPICY TRUFFLE FLAVORS:Spicy Double Dark Chocolate,Spicy Raspberry Dark Chocolate,Spicy Hazelnut Milk Chocolate,Spicy Cappuccino & A Buckin' hot Habanero Caramel. Inside of the box were one of each when this box was received my DH,A friend of ours & Myself tried these chocolates we each picked a random chocolate out of the box based on the color of the wrapper we liked,Found out the flavor we picked & then tried the chocolate.I must admit I only tried one of the chocolates,It tastes like normal chocolate until the after taste kicks in then there is a small spicy/burning sensation in your mouth I thought it was an odd sensation.My DH & our friend both thoroughly enjoyed the Chocolates though they did require a Drink after they were done testing them to help cool their mouths down.I think these chocolates are great for anyone who likes foods that have something a little extra added in. ****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used.
